Publisher's Description

Dr. Gary Chapman has spent his life helping people communicate love more effectively and in turn build more satisfying and lasting relationships. His book The Five Love Languages is a regular on the New York Times bestsellers list--even after being in print for fifteen years--and has made the term "love language" a part of everyday speech.

Love Is a Verb takes his teaching to the next level. Rather than a typical relationship self-help book filled with lengthy explanations of principles and techniques, it is a compilation of true stories displaying love in action.

These stories--written by everyday people--go straight to the hearts of readers, who often say that illustrations are the most effective parts of a book. Gary Chapman adds a "Love Lesson" to each story, showing readers how they can apply the same principles to their own relationships.

Author Bio

His book The Five Love Languages has sold more than five million copies in English alone and has been translated into thirty-six languages, including Arabic and Hindi.

    I bought this book as a couples devotional. Many of the stories are poorly written. Each story begins with a bible verse. I am not sure what bible was used but the verses are not from any bible I am familiar with.

    I would not buy this book. There are too many other good devotionals to pick from.

    This book is split into many different heartwarming stories, which allows you to pick up and read for short moments at a time. These stories make you really think about what is important in life.

    This book was not what I first expected, but as I read I really found it enjoyable. Love is a Verb is a compilation of several short stories written by several different people about their encounters with love. The stories range from uplifting to bittersweet and all touch on different kinds and aspects of love. Stories include love for a spouse, child, parent, neighbor, stranger, etc. They are powerful stories with eye-opening insights and thought-provoking concepts. I cried and maybe even laughed a little while reading this collection of tidbits right from people's real lives. Love is something so precious, a true gift we can give to others and receive from others. God is the ultimate example of what love is and can be and that also shines through in this heartfelt book. I recommend this treasure of a book for those who are interested in gaining new insights into love through the true-to-life words of people who have come face-to-face with the many facets of what love can be.Disclaimer:This book was provided for review by Bethany House Publishers.

    In his new book, "Love is A Verb," Gary Chapman has collected several short stories about love being lived out. This is different from some of his other books, but this book is great none the less. This is not so much a guide on how to love, although these stories provide teaching points and Chapman does include helpful insights at the end of each chapter. Instead it is a collection of stories about how people have lived out their love for one another. These are not your typical love stories though. These are inspiring stories about how love has changed lives through difficult circumstances. Chapman includes a variety of different situations and shows what can happen when someone decides to live out their love instead of giving up. He does a great job of reminding us with these stories that love is much more than a word. Love is demonstrated through actions and decisions. This book is powerfully written. I highly recommend this book.
